8/15/2017 4:30 PM PDT
Breaking News

Whatcha gonna do, brother ... when O'CONNELLMANIA runs wild on you?!?!? 

Yep, Jerry O'Connell stepped right into the squared circle at the Rumble of the North event in Canada this weekend ... where Carter "King of the North" Mason was battling Travis McCabe.

O'Connell was the special "guest referee" -- but when McCabe called him out in the center of the ring, Jerry ditched the stripes and went full beast mode!!!

Fun Fact -- Jerry's JACKED!!! 

Also, he totally screwed over McCabe to help Mason win the match.

Dirty tactic ... but effective. 

'Making The Band' Dylan Dili I Spit Hot Fire With Dave Chappelle, But It Wasn't Easy

8/15/2017 3:52 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The real Dylan Dili from Diddy's "Making The Band" finally getting the chance to meet his impersonator, Dave Chappelle, was no accident and it wasn't easy to orchestrate either.

Chappelle's sketch mocking Diddy's reality show and Dylan is now considered legendary, and it's pretty surprising the two hadn't met until the real Dylan literally had to make a charge for it at an event he knew Chappelle was going to be appearing at last Friday in Brooklyn.

When we got Dylan Tuesday he was still buzzing from the encounter. He's got a debut coming out, but seemed pretty gung-ho on a "Making The Band" reunion.

Bella Thorne's Ex Gregg Sulkin My New Chick Is Twerk-Tastic

8/15/2017 7:10 AM PDT

Bella Thorne's ex Gregg Sulkin is getting a lot more booty these days, because he's moved on to twerk master Lexy Panterra.

The two got in some vintage shopping at the open air Melrose Trading Post in L.A. Gotta give Gregg a pat on the back ... they say one man's junk is another man's treasure ... and Lexy's gotta whole lot.

People thought Gregg and Bella had reunited when he started popping up all over her Instagram this summer after her Cannes charade with Scott Disick went awry.

It's interesting ... Lexy and Bella are good friends too, after appearing in Tyler Perry's "Boo! A Madea Halloween" We're guessing ... no hard feelings.

Anthony Scaramucci Condemns Charlottesville Violence As for Trump ...

8/15/2017 6:52 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Anthony Scaramucci thinks there's no place in our society for neo-Nazi's and white supremacists, but he doesn't take that extra step and urge Trump to cut them from his base.

We got The Mooch Monday in NYC at the Hunt & Fish Club, which he partly owns ... and he joined the chorus, agreeing Trump should have come out earlier and condemned the hate groups in Charlottesville

Scaramucci also confirmed our earlier story ... that he's working with a Hollywood producer on a sitcom idea, with the working title "Attack of the Swamp Monsters" ... a story about a guy from Wall Street who comes to D.C. and gets attacked by political hacks who want him gone ... hmmmm, sounds familiar.

Scaramucci also has a thing or 2 to say about LGBTQ rights.

'Deadpool 2' Stuntwoman's Death Serves As A Reminder ... Hollywood Can Be Dangerous

8/15/2017 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

The tragic death of a stuntwoman on the set of "Deadpool 2" has reminded us that Hollywood stunts can quickly go awry, and they often have through the years.

We took a look back at some of the most brutal (and sometimes fatal) stunts that actors and stunt doubles put themselves through for the sake of the job ... and the aftermath ain't pretty.

From Dan Bilzerian's porn star rooftop toss in 2014 that left the woman with a shattered foot to the controversial mishandling of a pup on the set of "A Dog's Purpose" earlier this year and everything in between ... this week's latest accident, which left road racer Joi 'SJ' Harris dead, makes the message clear to Tinseltown's performers: BE CAREFUL!!!

That means you too, Tom Cruise

Julianne Hough Catch Me If Ya Can In Ketchikan, Alaska

8/14/2017 2:55 PM PDT
Exclusive Details

Julianne Hough's frequent-flier status must be through the roof ... she just surfaced in Alaska a couple weeks after her African honeymoon.

Hough ditched her new hubby, Brooks Laich, for this vacay, instead hopping aboard a Celebrity Cruise with a bunch of high school pals, a trip that she said had been 11 years in the making.

Must've been nice because we're told they got hooked up in an 1800 square foot room on the Celebrity Solstice that came with 2 bedrooms, grand piano and what we can only imagine were sick views of glaciers.

The suite sets the average person back about $10,200 for the week long trip.

Don't think the Timbs or the flannel came with the room.

Natalee Holloway MIniseries Triggers Lawsuit

8/14/2017 12:26 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Natalee Holloway has been missing for 12 years, and her story is still embroiled in controversy ... a story that has triggered a new lawsuit.

Edward Kramer just filed suit against 2 production companies -- Brian Graden Media and Lipstick -- for allegedly stealing his idea for a miniseries about Holloway's cold case. He says what's worse, he worked for the companies for more than a year without getting as much as a penny.

In the docs, obtained by TMZ, Kramer claims after Lipstick put him in touch with BGM in 2014 to develop the Holloway project, he was tasked with doing a lot of the legwork, like figuring out how to turn it into a miniseries, doing interviews, and getting the pitch ready for NBC and Oxygen (which is airing "The Disappearance of Natalee Holloway" this week).

Kramer says when he began asking about compensation, he got the runaround.

He's asking a judge to block the airing of the show.

We've reached out to BGM ... so far, no word back.

Jesse Williams Sits Out Nat'l Anthem at BIG3 Game After Charlottesville Attack

8/13/2017 2:55 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Jesse Williams refused to stand for the National Anthem while attending a BIG3 game this weekend ... and it appears to be in direct response to the Charlottesville attack.

Jesse was at the Staples Center in L.A. Sunday, sitting in for a round of games between 8 teams for Ice Cube's basketball tournament ... but during the anthem, the "Grey's Anatomy" star parked it.

While sitting court side, Jesse posted a video during the song with a caption that said "We'll stand when you do..." -- which seems to be aimed at President Trump. The Prez was criticized Saturday for not directly calling out white nationalists who were at the center of the violence.

A woman was killed after a man allegedly plowed into a crowd with his car. The suspect -- James Alex Fields Jr. -- has been charged with murder

Marshawn Lynch also sat out the National Anthem this weekend during a pre-season game with the Oakland Raiders ... although it's unclear if his sitting was in response to Charlottesville.

Anthony Scaramucci Bill Hader Spoofs The Mooch 'I'm Like Human Cocaine!!!'

8/11/2017 6:36 AM PDT

Anthony Scaramucci belatedly got the 'SNL' treatment courtesy of 'SNL' alum, Bill Hader ... and it was, well, a day too late.

It kinda felt like calling Scaramucci "The Mooch" was a new thing, even though it was kinda played out a couple weeks ago. And the Steve Bannon autofellatio gag was last month's news cycle.

Nevertheless, Hader did a good impression.

And, the last joke is pretty funny.

One thing's clear ... the 'SNL' folks must have been apoplectic when the Mooch resigned 11 days in.

Shar Jackson to Chris Massey 'Furious & Disgusted' Over Child Abuse Claims

8/9/2017 2:25 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

3:47 PM PT -- A rep for Chris tells TMZ ... Shar has every right to respond however she'd like, but Chris and his family are choosing to settle this in court and not in the media or on TV. Shar Jackson is apoplectic that Chris Massey accused her of abusing his 2-year-old daughter (Shar's granddaughter) ... saying her very public history as a parent is more than proof she'd never hurt a child.

Shar bristled at Chris' claims she hit his daughter, Mariah, last month and left a razor blade cut on her forehead. Shar -- who also had 2 kids by Kevin Federline -- says the claims are boldfaced lies and she's now got her own plan of attack ... against Chris.

As for the alleged razor blade injury to Mariah, Shar says the girl accidentally cut herself during a Facetime between her mom (Shar's daughter) and Chris back in May. Shar says she wasn't even there.

We've reached out to Chris  ... so far, no word back.
